Quick and easy

About the bake

We've all been there, swept up in the hustle and bustle of December until you remember you forgot to whip up your traditional Christmas Pudding. Well, rest assured we're here to save the day with our Last Minute Christmas Pudding - so quick you can even make it on Christmas Eve. 

Simply drizzle with boozy brandy butter or a simple cream or custard and you're good to go. If you're feeling extra festive, try our Bailey's custard with all the flavour and a cheeky tipple of Irish Cream Liqueur.

    Butter and line the base of a 1.5 litre pudding basin, which is suitable for use in a microwave, with greaseproof paper.

  2. Step 2:

    In a large bowl, stir the ingredients together, adding them one at a time in the order listed in the ingredient list. Stir to combine evenly.
